The cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 7 has been HASHTAG RuVealed!
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 7 whole years since I stumbled upon a lil old drag show that was tucked away on the graveyard slot of E4 – the foolish channel that aired the first 2 seasons before dropping the show. Clever move E4. Said no one. Ever.
Six years, six seasons, six winners, SEVENTY FOUR contestants, an All Stars edition, and a RuPaul podcast sponsored by squarespacedotcom (that’s SQUAREspacedotcom) in a pear tree and we are almost ready to celebrate SEVEN years of Drag Race!

With Michelle Visage and Santino Rice returning to his side as main judges, alongside the Pit Crew and a whole new line up of guest judges and visitors, RuPaul is looking ON POINT this season!
I can’t WAIT to see how it all turns out!
In the mean time, let’s have a look at this season’s queens!
“A one-of-a-kind collectible, this youthful beauty has studied her fashion, and it shows in her edgy, next level aesthetics. But will having the “smallest waist in Drag Race history” translate into taking the title?”
“With her overdrawn lips and clown makeup, this Native American’s eye-popping aesthetic will send ripples amongst her rivals. Trixie’s determination to stay true to her campy persona will either win the judges over… or cost her the crown.”
Drag Race’s oldest contestant is also a professor of costume –providing her with enviable skills for any fashion challenge. Married with two children, Tempest mixes maternal instinct with campy kitschy humor… a perfect storm to take the crown.
Never has a competitor shown the hunger of Iowa’s premiere queen, Sasha Belle. She has studied the game and has a strategy to take her all the way to the top… even if at the other competitors’ expense.
This relative newcomer has already made big waves in the drag scene in the short time she’s been doing drag. With her robotic Stepford Wife aesthetic and patented “Pearl Smash” performance technique, only time will tell if this baby queen is as unstoppable as her buzz.
Branding herself “beyond–this–planet beautiful,” this chic fashion queen with a face to die for started her drag career on the runways of New York. Will Miss Fame’s fashion chops be enough to make her the next supermodel of drag?
This gray-haired Old Hollywood glamour queen has “uniqueness” the house down. Staggeringly tall, with a kooky accent and even quirkier looks, Max will have her competitors gagging from the moment they see her. But will her unique take on drag be met with the same enthusiasm on the runway?
This “dancing diva of Texas” intends to spin, flip, kick and jump her way to the crown. A polished pageant queen whose reputation precedes her, Kennedy comes from the legendary Davenport family, where she grew up with Sahara Davenport.
This Russian-inspired queen can be found at the intersection of glamour and comedy; she is as beautiful as her mouth is dirty. A trained gymnast, Katya can drop into a mean split… but will her acerbic Russian schtick have the judges splitting too?
MRS. KASHA DAVIS
This “international celebrity housewife” is a classic old-school camp comedy queen. With little patience for youthful ignorance, Mrs. Kasha Davis asserts that “anyone can be a girl, but it takes balls to be a lady.”
Fans will have a sweet-tooth for this fiery Puerto Rican beauty, who mixes elegant glamour with mad performance chops. But don’t let her sweet name fool you – there’s as much spice in this outspoken Latina as there is sugar.
Outspoken and opinionated, Jasmine is a polished performer with the experience to back up her confidence. But with opinions as strong as hers, is it going to ruffle some feathers amongst her competitors?
JAIDYNN DIORE FIERCE
Infectiously sassy Jaidynn Diore Fierce lives up to her last name. And don’t be fooled by this big girl’s size – a polished performer, this bubbly dance queen can MOVE – and dance circles around the rest of the competition.
A self-described “glamour toad,” what Ginger Minj lacks in stature she makes up for in talent. Vocally gifted and born to entertain, this queen plans on winning over the judges with her Southern charm… and might just have them eating her right up.
So there we have them!
14 new fierce and fabulous queens!
Only one will be crowned America’s Next Drag Superstar!
May the best woman… WIN!
